About Orlando Housing Authority

Last-Modified: 2021-01-13 10:05:07

Orlando Housing Authority assists low income individuals and families by providing “to rent” housing units in either the public or private housing markets through Section 8 and Public Housing. They also manage and maintain its housing and each community’s public space; and provides residents with programs and opportunities that promote social and economic enrichment.

Must meet all eligibility requirements and be defined as a family. Must be income-eligible to participate in rental assistance programs, including single persons. It is the decision of The Admissions and Occupancy Department to be determined if one is eligible to receive assistance.

Applicants who apply for housing assistance are placed on a waiting list. Tenant Selection is based on housing needs and local preferences.  Applicants with no local preference are placed on the waiting list with a “no preference” status.

A local preference is as follows:
Involuntarily displaced  - Being removed from rental property through no fault of your own. i.e. fire, flood, condemnation, city or state actions, and landlord wants the property back.  Evictions for non-payment of rent is not included.Working family – Twelve months of full-time continuous employment and those unable to work because of age or disability.  (Continuous employment is defined as an average of thirty (30) hours or more per week.  An interruption of four (4) weeks or less is not considered a break in continuity.  Consideration will be given for longer breaks in employment if the adult family members were working an average of twenty (20) hours per week and attending school or job training for ten (10) or more hours per week.Graduates of Transitional Housing Programs – Currently living in a shelter and you have completed the necessary training and/or counseling required and now you are ready to leave the program and get your own housing. Former Public Housing or Section 8 Voucher participant and became a home owner – A former rental assistance program participant who became a home owner, who had met the requirements of the OHA homeownership program (including homeownership training) and who lost that home due to insufficient income.

Mission Statement: The mission of the Orlando Housing Authority (OHA) is "To offer a choice of safe and affordable housing options and opportunities for economic independence for residents of Orlando and Orange County.”
